KFC Style Baked Chicken Drumsticks

            This is a "Baked" replica of  "Kentucky Fried Chicken". Actually i really got tired and confused coming out with a name for this, for me its a ' KFC style Baked Chicken Drumstick with a Indian twist" . Anyways; after coming here we did try out the fried Chicken from KFC, very much health conscious hubby dear not being a very huge fan wasn't interested in having deep fried Chicken drumsticks, but i was really into it and loved having it atleast having 'not so' often times :).  But now for our little one sweetheart, i need to try  my best to come up with  recipes which are on the healthier side. Hope some of you might remember that I've said in my   previous post  that i have been collecting recipes, and this is one such recipe. I'm sure to get hold of that book  from my relative once i visit  India,  for our next vacation and  surely would let you all know the name of the book and the wonderful Chef.  I have made some minor changes to the recipe adding some ingredients to our taste, it came out really good and crunchy, and went great along  with the coleslaw salad.
